Treaty of Surat (1775)

  • The earlier treaties between the Company and the Peshwa were confirmed.
  • An English contingent of 2500 men was to be placed at the disposal of Raghoba for supporting his candidature for the Peshwaship.
  • Raghoba was to deposit jewellery worth Rs 6, 00,000 as security in British custody as well as pay half a lakh rupees every month for the upkeep of the army.
  • He agreed to cede to the British Bassein, Salsette and four islands adjacent to Bombay.

Maratha raids into Bengal and the Carnatic were to cease and any peace made by Raghoba with the authorities in Poona was not to exclude the English.
